BREAKFAST ON EVEREST
Custom private tour operator Remote Lands is especially respected for the breadth
and depth of its Asian offerings. Witness the company's 20-day pan-Himalaya itinerary through Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet: The trip includes a morning helicopter flight that
lands above 18,000 feet on Mount Everest, in a spot overlooking Base Camp, followed by
a Champagne breakfast at a more comfortable 13,950 feet. An option on the Nepal leg:
meeting Tashi Tenzing, grandson of the great explorer Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. Departures: Any day through 2017; from $27,000 per person.
Heli-Hot-Tubbing in New Zealand
"A pair of New Yorkers wanted to take their New Zealand adventure honeymoon to the next level, and we organized a helicopter to carry a hot tub to the top of a glacier. The couple spent two hours in the ultimate bath, with
Champagne flowing and 360-degree views of raw Kiwi beauty surrounding them." - Barkley Hickox, New York City
